About Pathways 2 NHS Procurement
Offering graduates the opportunity to develop a career in NHS Procurement through a 2-year Graduate Scheme.
Pathways 2 NHS Procurement was established by the Skills Development Network, Yorkshire & Humber to provide an opportunity for graduates to develop and progress within NHS Procurement. The Skills Development Network is an innovative Learning and Development Network providing training and development opportunities for finance, procurement and informatics across the whole of the NHS. The Network offers development opportunities for all levels of staff, including events and courses, mentoring and coaching, online training and resource packs for individuals and organisations. With support from Health Care Supply Association (HCSA) and NHS England and NHS Improvement (NHS E & I), Pathways 2 NHS Procurement offers this invaluable opportunity for graduates to join the NHS and learn and develop within procurement.
This training initiative offers graduates an opportunity to develop a career in NHS Procurement. It will allow graduates to gain experience in buying, contract management, materials management and many other areas within procurement. The graduate programme will give successful applicants a unique insight into how NHS organisations work.
